ROH Basel Social Club

ROH is pleased to share the gallery’s participation in Basel Social Club, showcasing paintings by Indonesian artists Banny Jayanata and Nadya Jiwa.

The Basel Social Club was founded in the spring of 2022 by a collective of artists, gallerists, and curators with the intention of creating social spaces for art. After its inaugural edition staged in a 1930s villa, the Basel Social Club reopens in a former mayonnaise factory, just minutes from Messeplatz, bringing together art, music, performance, and gastronomy during the art fair week. The Basel Social Club is accessible to all and free of charge

Banny Jayanata works primarily in the medium of oil painting by elucidating his own lyrical prose and breathing feelings depicted through figuration. His canvases capture a poignancy often overlooked between virtue and vulnerability while seeking a balance between the figurative and abstract. Drawing from personal experiences, Jayanata invents his own artistic language deeply influenced by music, literature and visual art.

Jayanata received his Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communication and Design from the Petra Christian University, Surabaya, Indonesia in 2002 and his Master’s Degree in Visual Arts from the Indonesian Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta in 2011. Banny has participated in a number of exhibitions throughout his artistic career. His solo exhibitions were Black and Blue Mood at Museum dan Tanah Liat, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2018) and LUKA at Independent Art Management, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2014). His group exhibitions include Art Jakarta Gardens with ROH, Jakarta, Indonesia (2023); tubuh at Art Jakarta with ROH, Jakarta, Indonesia (2022); Identitas yang Hidup at Museum dan Tanah Liat, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2021); Pan-Asian Cultural Connections at Capulet Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2020); Merayakan Optimisme, Taman Budaya Yogyakarta, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2019); 80 Nan Ampuh: Tribute untuk Oei Hong Djien at MDTL, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2019); Virtual Territories at Jogja National Museum, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2013); Works on Paper #2 at Aswara Heritage Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2013); DEKA – EXI(S) at Biennale Jogja at Kandang Menjangan, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2013) and at Museum H.
